You don't need the dri-trunk packages for the r128 driver, DRI has been
working with that since 4.1.0. The DRM in the kernel might still be too
old for 4.2.0 though...

This is the problem. The amount of video RAM you have only allows for
the DRI to be enabled at a lower virtual resolution or depth.
